At some point I am going to collect my thoughts and really go in to detail about my experience building. I will say this forum was beyond helpful and a great reliever of stress. I will start in reverse and post some of the finished pictures and over time really break it down and cover the whole process!!

Another week of terrible weather. Over two inches of rain fell, most of it on Tuesday, which has efectively kept the stucco guys from starting as they haven't been able to finish a prior job.  It's felt like we're in the Olympic Penninsula of Washington.  Dripping wet and cold.  The stone fellows worked Monday and Tuesday, under the cover of the roof overhangs. Man did they get things done! Three times as fast as the jokers I had last fall.  They should be back today to continue on the backwall.  


Framer came out Monday to start work on the stairs, but we've run into a major issue. The draftsman design the center of the stairs to be walls - something we had missed entirely. This was to make the stair co struction easier and hide all of the supporting structure.  We missed this entirely and had been planning on wide open timber framing for it to allow light through the entire staiwell. We and the framer are scratching our heads on how to build them.  He has contacted a stair company in Albuquerque to review and possible come up with a design.  It may be a steel framework.  But we need to figure it out quickly as we are still not able to access the 4th floor with stairs.  That means no inspections, no finishing the plumbing and venting, water lines and the like.  I've got plenty of other things that I can do in the meantime, but a serious setback.

Meanwhile, Sandra has started setting railing posts decks to use up a stack of 4x4's we had cut last year by the timber truss company.  We'll get as many of those set as we cal, leaving out several strategic ones that will allow sheetrock to be easily brought through later. Once the stucco is on, we can order decking and she can begin running that.  Keep moving along the best we can as we get curve balls thown at us.

The landscaper finished what he has for us at the moment.  Much to do after the septic field is done which is after stucco, roofing, backfill has opened up the area we will use.

Final pics below on what he accomplished.
